Thanks Bruce

Yes please do send me the author's rationale for why this is important 
to the WG (that would be helpful).

Is anyone willing to say a few words at the TSVWG meeting (with or 
without slides)?

How do you see this working, specifically there are a number of drafts that currently have not become work items - despite author pleas - while we waited for clarification of how to handle RSVP work. Undoubtedly I'll be asked if these can become work items. As usual I'll push-back on need to do the work, and people to review/contribute to the drafts. Are there current drafts know to the directorate that would seem ready and important enough that the WG should consider taking these on?
